This is a masterpiece.
So...after four games, Brendan Smith has arguably been the Rangers best defenseman. (I know what you are thinking, cream of the crap) Irregrdless, he has been assertive, somewhat dependable and certainly a much better player than we saw a year ago.
Now what happens before we try to monetize this asset? Is there a trade market there?
If he keeps this up all season then friggin holden netted a 3rd so...
Liking those odds. If he's a good leader, having learned from last year, then I'd rather keep him if we cant get a 1st or a 2nd+ (or a prospe t around that value). It's good to have a few vets around
I'd think there's a market, somewhat limited because he has multiple years left. Maybe with some retention you could get a decent return.
He has been good, though. I'm happy to keep him since he's versatile in that he can play on the right, so he's not as much of an impediment as he would be if he could only play one side.
Toronto got lots of cap space, looking to trade Nylander, need a Dman, and Babcock used to coach Smith in Detroit so I think the stars are aligning for this to happen. Of course Gorton will mess it up.
You are stating it as fact, and when the trade doesn't happen it's somehow Gorton's fault
